Joe Mathlete Explains Today's Marmaduke

This site is often worth a stop. It may be a one-trick pony, but it works for me. I can only assume that the same is being done somewhere for Family Circus, Garfield and Ziggy.

Marmaduke is riding a skateboard. While this in and of itself is absolutely HYSTERICAL (dogs aren't supposed to be able to ride skateboards!), the gag is kicked into overdrive when it is revealed (via his owner-boy's exposition to his fellow tricycle enthusiast) that not only is Marmaduke a dog who can ride a skateboard, he is a dog that is phenomenally skilled at riding a skateboard. You could cut the comedic absurdity with a knife.
